The Woodbridge Park Association and the Beecher Road School Parent Teacher Organization teamed up for the 11th annual Harvest Hike in early October. “This event is to bring awareness to the Alice Newton Street Memorial Park and introduce it to families who might not be familiar with it,” said Tim Kelley, who is a board member of both organizations. “Plus, it’s a good excuse for the kids to get outside, learn about the park and get together.”
About 60 families walked the blue trail through the park on a sunny afternoon. They stopped at the water fall to play and then returned to the park entrance for a snack of apples, pretzels and apple cider. “What a great event to introduce our young people to an important and beautiful park in Woodbridge,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar.
